(MRL) petitioned the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) to include MRL in a waiver of compliance from certain provisions of the Federal railroad safety regulations contained at 49 CFR part 232, Brake System Safety Standards for Freight and Other Non-Passenger Trains and Equipment. FRA assigned the petition Docket Number FRA–2012– 0091. Specifically, MRL seeks relief with respect to the application of 49 CFR 232.205(c)(1), Class I brake test-initial terminal inspection, and § 232.207(b)(1), Class IA brake tests—1,000-mile inspection, for trains operating in distributive power mode.

Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway were added as parties to the test waiver on November 21, 2014, and Union Pacific Railroad was added as a party on March 4, 2015. On May 3, 2017, FRA granted a change in status from a test waiver to a waiver of compliance, and on February 8, 2019, CSX Transportation, Inc. was added to the waiver. MRL requests to be a party to the same waiver. If granted, MRL would be subject to the same conditions as set forth in FRA’s May 3, 2017 letter.
